SOLSTICE / YULE - LONGEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR
Lorna Wyllsun

Dec. 17 - Solstice / Yule 

Service Leader: Lorna Wyllsun

Earth-Based Spirituality Council

Winter Solstice also called Yule marks the point on the Wheel of the Year when the darkness starts to give way to the light.

For many this is a time of joy and celebration at the sun's "rebirth".

For others, as the earth settles into winter coldness, Yule can be a time of sadness and melancholy. For our ancestors many of the rituals and traditions of this time helped to amplify the joy and rekindle the human spirit. This service will be led by the Earth-Based Spirituality Council .
